  1. 1. The Tragedy of Ordinarity : Culture Constraints on Sustainable Development Based on Public Transport

    Author : Stephan Bösch; Gerhard Gustafsson; Reinhold Castensson; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; culture; transport culture; public transport; geography; transport geography; sustainable development; sustainable transport; kultur; transportkultur; kollektivtrafik; geografi; transportgeografi; hållbar utveckling; hållbara transporter; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis consists of two free-standing papers and a linking essay that links the papers by articulating an overall research aim and common theoretical background. The research aim is kept general and focuses on the role public transport can play in sustainable development. READ MORE

  2. 2. New Approaches to Studies of Paracellular Drug Transport in Intestinal Epithelial Cell Monolayers

    Author : Staffan Tavelin; Per Artursson; Staffan Tavelin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutics; intestinal epithelium; tight junctions; cell culture; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics; Galenisk farmaci; galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Abstract : Studies of intestinal drug permeability have traditionally been performed in the colon-derived Caco-2 cell model. However, the permeability of these cell monolayers resembles that of the colon rather than that of the small intestine, which is the major site of drug absorption following oral administration.

  3. 3. Safety Culture in Sea and Aviation Transport

    Author : Åsa Ek; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; organizational climate; air traffic control; safety culture; passenger shipping; airport ground handling; Social sciences; Samhällsvetenskaper; Development psychology; Utvecklingspsykologi; Applied and experimental psychology; Tillämpad och experimentell psykologi; Technological sciences; Teknik; Säkerhetsteknik; Safety technology;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis investigates sea and aviation transport safety culture, with a focus on perceptions and attitudes. A safety culture reflects the attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, and values that individuals share in relation to safety. READ MORE

  4. 4. Models for the Transfer of Drugs from the Nasal Cavity to the Central Nervous System

    Author : Björn Jansson; Erik Björk; Sveinbjörn Gizurarson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biopharmacy; Administration; intranasal; Nasal mucosa; Central nervous system; Olfactory bulb; Rat; Mouse; Swine; Cattle; Diffusion chambers; culture; In vitro; Biological models; Biological transport; Dextrans; Dopamine; Gels; Polysaccharides; Autoradiography; Fluorescence microscopy; Biofarmaci; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci;

    Abstract : The blood-brain barrier restricts the access of many compounds, including therapeutic agents, to the brain. Several human studies indicate that nasal administration of hydrophilic compounds, such as peptides, can bypass the blood-brain barrier. The aims of this thesis were to develop and refine models for this direct nose-to-brain transfer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diagnosing Sharing Anxiety

    Author : Sigma Dolins; []
    Keywords : shared autonomous vehicles; qualitative methods; ridehailing; ridepooling; public transport; shared autonomous public transport; autonomous vehicles; on-demand transport; sharing anxiety;

    Abstract : Numerous studies indicate that the potential of autonomous vehicles (AVs) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce traffic congestion, and increase mobility access can only be fully realized through fleets of vehicles being used for shared rides, also known as dynamic ridepooling. This has the potential for transforming the public transport industry, as well as how transportation functions in urban and rural contexts. READ MORE
